EWSN 2015
12th European Conference on Wireless Sensor Networks

9-11 February 2015, Porto, Portugal

The European Conference on Wireless Sensor Networks (EWSN) is a highly
selective single-track international conference focused on publishing
premier research results pertaining to networked sensing, broadly

The organizers of EWSN 2015, the twelfth meeting in this series, are pleased
to announce an updated scope that combines the traditional focus of this
conference with emphasis on recent and emerging directions in networked
sensing. These new and emerging directions include (i) study of networked
sensing in the broader context of larger cyber-physical systems and Internet
of Things architectures, (ii) investigation of mobile and human-centric
sensing, (iii) exploration of large-scale data and information processing

CfP Highlights

* Extended Scope
EWSN 2015 will feature an updated scope, combining the traditional focus of
this conference with emphasis on recent and emerging directions in networked

* Updated Topics on Emerging Directions
In line with the extended scope, we are soliciting contributions to new and
emerging directions, such as: Human-centric sensing (e.g.
crowd-sourcing/crowd-sensing, mobile  sensing) or big (sensor) data
challenges (e.g. large-scale information processing,  analysis of sensor

* New Additional Paper Format
EWSN 2015 will introduce a smaller paper format for validated early ideas
that can be described by a more concise contribution. Therefore, we
solicit two types of original submissions for oral presentation: full papers
(16-pages) and short papers (8 pages).

Topics of Interest

EWSN 2015 welcomes contributions describing original ideas, promising new
concepts, and practical experiences (experimental validation, rebuttal,
and/or comparison of existing approaches) that fall broadly in the following

* Wireless sensor networks and protocols:
	-Communication and network protocols
	-Information and signal processing
	-Software engineering for wireless sensor networks
	-Programming abstractions and tools
	-Hardware design and implementation
	-Sensor network operating systems and resource management
	-Cognitive sensor networks

* Sensor network applications and services:
	-Sensing in cyber-physical systems
	-Internet of Things
	-Cooperative object architectures
	-Novel uses of sensor data, including healthcare, body area networks,
vehicular applications, and smart buildings
	-Localization and tracking services
	-Security and fault tolerance
	-Sensor network middleware
	-Models, systems, and experiences with humans as sensors

* Human-centric sensing:
	-Crowd-sourcing/crowd-sensing challenges
	-Mobile sensing
	-Smart phone sensing applications
	-Opportunistic, participatory, and social sensing
* Big (sensor) data challenges:
	-Large-scale information processing, learning, mining, and analysis of
sensor data
	-Challenges in sensor data stream processing
	-Networked data fusion challenges
	-Prototypes, testbeds, field experiments

Paper Submission

This highly selective conference will only accept for review original papers
that have not been previously published and are not currently under review
by any other conference or journal. We will adopt a double-blind review
process, where the names of authors and their affiliations are unknown to
reviewers until the end of the review process.

Conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture
Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS). Submissions should have a maximum
of 16 pages (full papers) or 8 pages (short papers), including text, figures
and references, and conform to the LNCS style

Important dates

Paper registration: 8-Sep-2014
Paper submission: 15-Sep-2014
Paper notification: 16-Nov-2014
Camera ready: 7-Dec-2014
